(Tim Dominick / State / August 5, 2013) By Richard Winton August 28, 2013, 1:11 p.m. Justin Bieber was cited early Wednesday for allegedly running a stop sign and driving without a valid California license, officials said. It was the latest run-in with the law for the pop singer, who in recent months has been investigated for everything from allegedly spitting at a neighbor to allegedly driving recklessly down suburban residential streets. Bieber was stopped in Calabasas, where he lives. When questioned by a deputy, he acknowledged living in the state but could not produce a driver’s license, said Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department . The deputy cited Bieberand allowed a passenger to drive the singer’s Ferrari away with Bieber inside, Whitmore said. “He was cooperative,” Whitmore said of the singer. Bieber’s sports car could have been towed, but Whitmore said it is up to the discretion of a deputy. Prosecutors have twice declined to file charges against Bieber for run-ins with paparazzi. Sheriff’s officials also have investigated allegations that he drove recklessly in his gated community and that he spat in a neighbor’s face during an altercation. ALSO:

name * says reply to this 2 Tee.emm.zeee gets a couple hundred comment of the same story/pic a day ago, you’ll get 8 if you’re lucky. ehh I like Fatburger OK, but like In n Out or The Habit better. fancypants66 says reply to this 5 Pot does give you the munchies, ya know. So what? He is entitled to eating a hamburger whenever he wants. He has actually stayed out of the press (trouble) the last couple of weeks. He deserves a nice juicy hamburger. Go Justin! ok_then says reply to this 6 It’s not like Justin Bieber can walk into a fast food place and eat a burger anytime he likes, he has to pick a time when there is less people around. Can you imagine the total chaos that would erupt if he walked into a Fatburger in the day time? So he had to pick a time when there would less of a crowd to make a fuss over him. Just because he went there so late, doesn’t mean he had the munchies from smoking pot. Yeah people freak out no matter what time of the day or night he steps out in public.
Justin Bieber ‘banned from driving’ in California
The Canadian singer is said to have cooperated with officers and was cited for running a stop sign and being unlicensed. He was also reportedly “ordered out of the driver’s seat,” meaning his passenger had to drive the car home. A spokesperson for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department was unable to confirm the traffic stop to Cover Media at press time. Justin will be required to obtain a valid California license from the Department of Motor Vehicles before he can get back behind the wheel. A spokesperson for the star did not respond to a request for comment from Cover Media. This would not be the first time Justin has faced a traffic citation. The singer was accused by neighbours of driving recklessly and reaching speeds of up to 100 mph in his gated community earlier this year and became the subject of a police investigation after one resident claimed Justin assaulted him during a confrontation about the matter. A spokesperson for the star denied the claims. Justin was also cleared of an alleged hit-and-run collision last month. The claim stemmed from an incident outside a West Hollywood, California nightclub in June in which Justin was accused of injuring a photographer while behind the wheel. According to TMZ, prosecutors had insufficient evidence in the case.
